Status: Very Rare (< 5 records)

Origins: Resident along the Pacific coast from northern Mexico to northern California, breeding further north to British Columbia. It is a rare vagrant to the east coast, very rare to eastern Canada.

Record Details: One record for Newfoundland. Incredibly, an apparent adult female first reported at a feeder in Brownsdale, Trinity Bay in January 2011 had been present for many weeks and survived until February 7 (one of the coldest days of that winter).
